The Great British Bake Off is back and with it comes the opportunity to cash in on the hype around home baking.

The award winning BBC series is in its fifth season and as its popularity soars, so too should interest in cookery and kitchen magazines.

BBC Good Food is the best seller in the category, with an estimated £3.6m annual retail sale value. Eye to Eye Media’s Delicious magazine comes in second at an estimated £1.3m.

There are plenty of sales opportunities in the sector, including Halloween, which is now the third biggest seasonal occasion in the UK.

Christmas obviously provides a huge seasonal lift, with Christmas specials and festive recipes drawing additional sales.

The first ever BBC Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show to take place in London this October is also likely to help boost interest.

The show will be packed with baking, bread making and cake crafting demonstrations, free master classes, and hundreds of products to encourage visitors to start baking.
